Hull number YN 16650 built at Heesen in Oss Holland has been christened Monaco Wolf by the yacht’s owner during the private ceremony.
The yacht will be tested in the North Sea before being delivered to her Owners at the end of May 2014.
Streamlined both above and below the waterline, her twin MTU engines, 16V 4000 M73L, power her to a top speed of 23 knots and a range of over 3.100 nautical miles.
The distinctively Heesen lines were designed by Frank Laupman of Omega Architects and feature the iconic reverse sheer ‘pelican beak’ bow.
Continuous sheets of laminated triple glazing have been thermo-bonded to the superstructure creating a seamless wall of windows resulting in a striking contemporary look.
Her elegant interior design has been created by acclaimed Italian designer Francesco Paszkowski who comments: “I am very pleased to have had the chance to work with Heesen again. I like the way they challenge the designers while working on the project and defining its details. The result is a virtuous circle that combines technical and safety aspects with design and style, while keeping Heesen’s outstanding quality standards and our proposals. Team work played a crucial role in bringing this project to fruition”.
The design is enhanced by particular attention to the lighting systems throughout the yacht. Custom-controlled lighting can transform the atmosphere from bright party mode through to pools of subtle illumination.
Monaco Wolf can accommodate up to twelve guests in six staterooms. The master suite is traditionally located on the main deck. Both bedroom and bathroom are full-beam with windows running along their entire length. The other guest suites are found on the lower deck and include a full-beam VIP, two double and two twin cabins.
Lastly and perhaps most importantly, the yacht has been made dog proof using plate glass screens in the exterior railings to not only to satisfy all the usual safety regulations, but also to offer safe passage for the owners canine companions.
